There are a wide range of automobile brands dominating the Indian market, and among them, foreign giants share a sizable percentage as well. A variety of brands across the globe have invested in India, which has synthesized and evolved over the years. Today, Volvo has emerged as one of the top players in the car business and their models have all been received well by the public here. Among the numerous models that the Swedish giant has released, the XC range has grown to dominate our roads. The XC40 and XC90, both of which have also stood as new releases, have both gathered a rather good praise from the public and they are planning the launch of yet another model to this range, the XC30. Like the others in the XC range, this yet to be launched vehicle is a compact SUV crossover. It is planned to be released somewhere later in this year. This vehicle has been generating a great deal of attention over the past few months, and all of the information available at this moment is based on well founded speculations gathered from reliable sources.
The build of this vehicle is meant to share the platform laid by the C30 series although its overall profile is larger and more salient. The mark that this model carries, that sets it well apart from others of its segment, is its two doored structure. It makes it uniquely appealing, blending its SUV side with a more dashing, sports car like look. A low height, and a slender aerodynamic profile further accentuates this feature. The vehicle stretches for a total length of 4500mm, with its wheelbase at 2600mm. The company has timed its launch with that of other expected SUV crossovers from rival brands.
Starting with the exteriors of the vehicle, it has a large and heavy stance, which is however contained for a slightly smaller and more compact appearance. The large vehicle is shorter than probably most SUVs on the roads, tactfully layered for a sporting streak in its looks. The front has the signature grille, shaped like a hexagon, and with the crossed over emblem of the company over it. The headlights on either side are tear-drop shaped, complete with LEDs and all the lighting necessities of the day. Fog lights are present, in addition to speculative expectations of darkness sensing headlights. Beneath this, the air vents are separated into three portions, and this gives the vehicle a cooler look from the front. The side of the vehicle is sharpened with wide and prolific wheel fenders, and large wheels beneath them. The alloy wheels give the vehicle a more modern feel. With just two doors by the side, a sporty edge is won over by the side of the car. The hood rises fluidically to blend with the front windscreen, which is swept backwards for a more visually aesthetic show. The roof slides over and drops towards the rear. The back of the vehicle has a more muscular build, with tail lights that are also complete on all the necessities. In addition to all of these, the tinted windows mask the vehicle with a sleeker aura. Also, the bumpers are body colored, granting additional appeal.
Now turning to a more intense facet, it is expected to come with a 2.4-litre turbocharged diesel engine. Sources on the interweb also whisper of a petrol engine, namely the same 1.6-litre one that arms the XC40. As for the diesel engine that is known to come with the car, it has a displacement value of 2400cc. Furthermore, it allows the vehicle to fire with a max power of 185hp at 4000rpm. The torque is also strong, with a peak figure of 400Nm at 2000rpm. The vehicle is sure to gather enough power to reach top speeds of around 200 Kmph, and to cross the 100 Kmph barrier in 15 or so seconds. These are mere guesses, and we can only wait for the true figures behind its performance to unwind. The engine's performance is supposed to be transferred efficiently through a 6 speed manual transmission.
Steering over to a softer side, the cabin is to be complete with all luxury and convenience expectations of the day. Plush leather seats are to provide maximum comfort to the passengers. Folding rear seats add to the comfort quotient, and an electric driver seat adjustment is to be present. The rear center armrest comes with a cup holder. Turning to the instruments and sophistication within the cabin, there are a host of good features that the cabin is sure to come with. The web confirms that an advanced music system arms the cabin, with a dash integrated player. A tachometer is also present. Power windows give the best luxury to the passengers, together with a steering adjustment feature and a power steering feature. The air conditioning unit is proficient, and additional ducts are present at the rear for the best circulation. At the top of all the features, literally, is a sunroof that relieves the passengers of all burdens of the driver with an exalting view of the sky. A remote central locking makes sure that the driver's job is eased, and a host of other aids are present to further elevate his comfort. The driver's needs are assisted and upgraded with techno features. This includes an anti lock braking system and an electronic brakeforce distribution system. An additional function exists, known as the electronic stability program, further tightening the drive safety and stability when driving. Traction control secures a better control over the vehicle always.
All of these are additional requirements that the vehicle fulfills. Coming to the more standard features, it has an advanced braking system. Front ventilated brakes and discs at the rear grip the best turning and stopping needs of the vehicle. The suspension is also meant to be top notch. Besides all of this, the final and most important necessity for the passengers, safety, is well secured also. The vehicle comes with four airbags shielding its passengers always, and tight seatbelts strapping them in throughout. Rear parking sensors also hold a better reliability for the vehicle when driving, and ensure safety not only for the vehicle's passengers, but for others around it too. All of this together packs this dream vehicle, making it the core of this car maker's achievements for years to come. This crossover is set to exit production halls and begin rolling down our streets sometime at the latter part of this year, and the Indian car enthusiasts wait with their fingers crossed.
